Chunky Frozen Peach Pops

By Logo inline

Make sure to reserve a portion of the peaches as you puree the mixture so the pops will be packed with icy cold, chunky bits of fruit. For a grown-up twist, try adding 1 to 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh mint, lemon verbena or basil.

I have a better idea, which I actually made and tried today: peel and chop 3 peaches (or however you want to make), freeze them, then process them with half a cup of unsweetened almond milk- voila peach ice cream! Adding cinnamon seems to bring out the peach's sweetness.
